Starting a Travel Agency


These days, travel agents may work from home or at an office as most travel arrangements are made online. To start a travel agent business, it is helpful to have a working knowledge of travel agent software, customer service experience and experience in travelling to different parts of the world. If you want to start your own travel agency, here are some tips given by www.smallbusiness.chron.com, when starting a travel agency business.

Decide whether to become an independent travel consultant or owner of a travel agency. Independent travel consultants earn commissions for the work they do for a travel agency. Consultants may work from home or in an agency's office. As a consultant, you may be limited in the types of travel services you can provide clients. Purchasing.a franchise allows you to build a business on an already successful brand, but you may still be limited in the types of services you can provide. Starting your own agency allows you to sell a wider variety of travel services while allowing you keep all the proceeds from each sale.

Determine the types of travel services to offer to clients. Travel services include transportation arrangement  (air, train, boat, car, hotel and resort reservations, cruise packages and specialized tour packages such as eco-tours or city-based tours. You may also want to specialize exclusively in family travel, senior travel, corporate travel or academic travel to set your business apart from other travel agencies.

Lease a space for your travel agency or work from home. Contact local commercial real estate agents to find available retail space. Choose a space in a busy retail area with ample parking. The space should be large enough to meet with clients while housing computer equipment, furniture and marketing materials. If working from home, create a space that allows you to work comfortably at your computer while providing adequate storage for computer equipment and software, marketing materials and files.

Create a website. Include a description of travel services, contact information and on-line booking options. Invest in computer software programs that process client bookings and payment from your website, track online marketing campaigns and captures email addresses.

Purchase general liability or home-based business insurance. Protect your business in the event of a lawsuit or settlement. Worker's compensation insurance may be necessary if hiring employees. This insurance helps pay the costs incurred through an accident or injury at the workplace.

Create marketing materials. Create materials such as brochures, business cards and flyers to promote your travel agency. Build a client list that includes email addresses, travel preferences, past travel destinations. Send email updates of travel specials, events or other information of interest to clients each business quarter to encourage sales.

Happy New Year 2013


This is a late New Year greeting from me. I know there's no excuse in just saying Happy New Year to all. But I have to admit, I've been busy with work as I always do. As a matter of fact, I was at work the New Years Eve day, so you can imagine the way my lifestyle now. It all evolves now with work to house and house to work. I promise myself this year that at least I have update on my blog once every week, so just to be on the loop with blog friends and Google radar. So it's never too late to say Happy New Year to all.

Lay your troubles on my shoulder, put your worries in my pocket


This song just came-out of my mind from nowhere. Early this morning, I felt fearful & worried of something I don't know why. Talking about fear of unknown. This usually happens to me when, I'm stress and occupied with trash thoughts which drains my positive outlook in life. Although some of it has basis, but still I rather not think about as much as possible. It lingers in my mind and leave trace of self-doubt.

I just wanna share this old song which I think gives a good message and it helps me ease some worries & troubles I'm feeling right now.

REST YOUR LOVE ON ME

Maybe you don`t know me anymore than I know you 
And I wouldn`t blame you if you walked away 
I`ve been watching you all evening 
With the teardrops in your eyes 
And it touches me much more than I can say 

You know I hate to think that someone 
Could have hurt someone like you 
And if I was them I`d be right by your side

Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 
Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 

Saw you in the corner on the moment I walked in 
Saw your lonely face across the room 
No, I won`t forget it 
And the way it might have been 
Oh, why did you have to leave so soon? 

You know I hate to think that someone 
Could have loved you more than me 
And at times like this I`d be right by your side

Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 
Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 

How long must I wait 
For the last train to leave here 
And the last chance to go home? 
Get to thinking I was born too soon 
How long, honey 
When the lovin` don`t come 
It was there when you left me 
Just didn`t know how to begin 

Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 
Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 

Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 
Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Put your love on me awhile 

Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile 
Lay your troubles on my shoulder 
Put your worries in my pocket 
Rest your love on me awhile
